Orange Moon – Contemporary intimate wedding set in an urban East End eclectic & rustic venue. This styled shoot was born from the lack of representation of black vendors in styled wedding and bridal shoots and set out to highlight the high level of skill and service that black vendors offer to the wedding industry. The shoot is also aimed at the new world order the wedding industry finds itself post COVID-19 lockdown as intimate and small weddings are becoming an ever-popular way for people to tie the knot. Authenticity is key and so our couple Miniver & Daniel took the opportunity to renew their wedding vows almost 4 years into their marriage. When Osman reached out to me to help him make the vision a reality. I jumped at the chance. His working is amazing. So my job was the bring the look together in a clear and creative way and to make sure no corner was forgotten. Granted the look did change significantly. But Osman trusted me and my artistry and that is key when creating any event.
Finding incredible supplier was the next step. This looks was not a traditional white wedding. I wanted a real elegance, romantic and high-fashion look. And that’s exactly what we got. Autumnal colours featured heavily throughout the look. So I reached out to an ally sustainable linen creator Mia Sylvia, Zesty earthy stationary by Chloe Ainsley and floral design by Jennifer Debrah. The venue Clapton Country club stood as a great backdrop with its dark lit sultry atmosphere to contrast to the contemporary dresses by Rita Colson and suit by Anthony London.
